Question about Amazon Kindle Wireless Reading Device

1 Answer

My kindle is stuck on the resting picture and will not wake up when the power switch is slid and released. Is there a reset opening to the right of the head phone jack? I have already tried holding the power for 5 seconds and watched for 3 flashes and there was no change.

On Jan 1 my wife's Kindle would not shut off. I got it to do it then researched at home. This works on Kindle 3, hold the power switch for about 20 seconds and let go. In about a minute your Kindle should reboot. ;-)

How to reset the Amazon Kindle (useful when the unit is frozen)


Hi.

The Amazon Kindle is known for having several firmware issues, and it is not unusual seeing the unit freezing and not starting.

To start you can attempt doing a soft reset. To do a soft reset press and hold the <ALT>, <Shift>, and <R> keys simultaneously. The Kindle display should go blank for few seconds, and then restart.

If your Amazon kindle is still frozen, try resetting the unit to factory default settings with the hard reset procedure below. Procedure is different, depending on the Kindle model.

All you have to do to reset the Amazon Kindle 2 and Kindle DX is pressing and holding down the power button for about twenty seconds, then release the button and let the unit restart.

If instead you have the previous model, the amazon Kindle one, then you will need to open the back cover by pressing it and sliding it to the right with your finger, same as when you have to replace the batteries.

Behind the cover you will see the reset hole switch.

Push and hold a sharp pointed object, like a paper clip, or the tip of a pencil inside the hole button located under the battery cover.

Wait about ten seconds until the Kindle restarts and resets to default settings.

The last procedure and the picture below refer to Kindle one only. If you have kindle two, then please use the first procedure.

If the above does not fix the problem, then the unit is faulty. In that case contact Amazon to get support.

Regards.

It will not power up. was on the charger most of the day.


To wake up or turn on your Kindle, slide and release the power switch again. If your Kindle does not power on or is unresponsive during use, try resetting the device by disconnecting your Kindle from any power source, and then sliding and holding the power switch for 15 seconds before releasing.

I didn't realize that was putting a pass word n .How can I open my kindle/


Forgot my password

Did you forget the password used to unlock your Kindle? If so, you'll need to reset the device to gain access. By resetting, your Kindle will be restored to factory defaults, which means your registration information and content will be removed, and all settings will return to the defaults.

To reset a Kindle Fire 1st Generation:
1. From the lock screen, slide the Unlock Bar from right to left
2. Use the keypad to enter characters into the password/PIN field four times
3. You'll be prompted to reset your Kindle Fire. Tap "Ok reset"

To reset all other Kindle Fire models:
1. From the lock screen, slide the Unlock Bar from right to left
2. Use the keypad to enter characters into the password/PIN field five times.
3. When prompted to reset your Kindle Fire, tap "Reset"

To reset a Kindle 2nd Generation, Kindle Keyboard, or Kindle DX:
1. Slide and release the power switch to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Enter "resetmykindle" in the password field and press the enter key on the key pad
3. Wait several minutes while your Kindle restarts

To reset a Kindle (5-way controller):
1. Press and release the power button to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Select the keyboard key once on the password screen and enter "resetmykindle" in the password field, then select "Enter"

To reset a Kindle Touch or Kindle Paperwhite:
1. Press and release the power button to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Tap the password field to bring up the onscreen keyboard
3. Enter "111222777" and select "OK"

If you don't remember your Parental Controls password, you can deregister your device instead of resetting, as long as you're connected to a wireless network. You'll need to redownload your content, but items that were transferred via USB will be kept. Here's what to do:

1. Visit the Manage Your Content and Devices (www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle) page on your computer
2. Select the "Manage Your Devices" link
3. Select "Deregister" to deregister your device from your account
Sync your Kindle, then register again.

If you need help with your Wi-Fi password, please contact your Internet Service Provider or router manufacturer.
